European Wealth poaches ex-Barclays managers for North West hub

European Wealth has poached two former Barclays Wealth managers to open up its first office in Manchester.

Former Gerrard managers Nigel Gilland and David Mellett will open an office on Manchester’s Hardman Square for the company on 14 September. The pair left Barclays in February.

Chief executive and former Wealth Manager coverstar Rod Gentry (pictured) said: ‘Since we commenced trading in 2010, we have expanded our geographic reach from the South East, to the West and South West and now, today, we are able to offer our services to clients in the North West.

‘With European Wealth's strong investment performance, delivering above average returns for clients, and an emphasis on delivering a personalised service through local, trusted professionals, we believe that the Manchester office will quickly become a significant element of the group.’

Gilland has worked in the region since 1992, joining Albert E Sharp in 1996, before its takeover by Gerrard in 2001. He was joined by Mellett in 2006, having worked in Barclays since 2003.
